New Stuff! New Stuff!!!

Dude, I love it when Stampin' Up! comes out with new stuff, whether it's a new catalog or mini or new photopolymer stamps or whatnot.  And this week I got my preorder stuff for the Occasions not-so-mini and Sale-a-Bration so YAY FOR NEW STUFF!

Sorry, I'm shouting.  But I'm excited about new stuff.

*dancing around the room* WHEEEEEE NEW STUFF! *jazz hands*

Okay, I'm done now.  (Not really.)

The stamp set is See Ya Later and will be one of the SAB options to get for freeeeeeee starting in late January (but I have it now because I'm a demonstrator and we get to see things early which is awesome, you should join up too if you haven't drunk the Kool-Aid yet).  There are three other cute stamps in this set to go along with Mr. Alligator here, but I chose him because of this fab color combo from Fab Friday:

I love those colors together.  They *could* be Christmasy but obviously I'm taking a break from Christmas stuff for today.  Oh and didja notice the fun new patterned paper?  It's a little 4.5x6.5 stack called Fresh Prints (of Bel Air!) from the Occasions mini.  Lemme tell ya, the patterned paper in that mini is to die for!  Not literally, but it's really awesome!!  I got one of everything to start with.  The paper I mean; if I got one of everything in the whole catalog I'm sure even my super-patient and understanding husband would schedule an intervention.

The sketch is hot off the press from Freshly Made Sketches:

Though I modified it just a teensy bit by making a square card, which is unusual for me.  I like the normal rectangle, but my lil gator wanted a square card.  Oh, I also modified the Apothecary Accents Framelit shape--it was too wide for the image, so I ran it through the Big Shot with the image towards the left of the shape, then positioned it again toward the right and ran it through a second time to make the shape a bit narrower.  It was pretty easy since the top and bottom of that shape are both straight lines; I wouldn't try this with one of the curvy shapes.

That's it for me today!  Hope you have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
